really liked it

I'd recently read a book about Henry Hudson's last voyage and how he'd probably been set adrift in the Arctic. It was a painfully boring book, and I was not looking forward to reading this one.

However, Brandt's effort is a surprisingly good read. It's full of British hubris and utterly insane tales of survival and even has a compelling mystery to it. I was totally captivated.
